HAHA yeah cheers guys! pics will come I have a few folders full so will pick some good ones and I have a few new ones of the sound system (just had a new VIBE sub put in so she was all apart again so good opportunity to get some happy snaps) and of the rear bar LED's.

Pah: it's actually scary to see the list of mods... although some are only minor she all adds up. No doubt have left something off the list too haha :blink: & yeah it would be great to catch up when you make it over here next year :lol:

Oh Cheers Guys!! You’re all very kind!

She has come up pretty good I’m stoked with it. Great to have something that’s half "unique" that stands out on the road although in Tas that's not too hard :lol: Really couldn’t be happier with it, Seems to get plenty of looks and people seem genuinely interested to know more about it and Aurion in general as most people know little about them. Guess most people interested in cars don’t really consider a Toyota. HAHA yes the brakes are a good thing!! Especially with some good fluid and braided lines, one of my favourite parts of the car :clap:

For a sh!t giggle lol??

Design work on the GR series family was heavily Lexus based. Also there are several engine plants around the world producing the engine. Initially final assembly for the engine for Aurion didn’t take place at Altona they were” crate" engines produced elsewhere by several Toyota Group Companies facilities and shipped here whole.

But really it’s really a redundant argument whose engine it is because you could also say a LFA V10 is just a Toyota engine because it’s ultra-similar in design and componentry to the TOYOTA TF108/09 series race car Engine and Toyota designers worked on the engine aswell. Same can be said for the ISF V8.

Also the TOYOAT Prius is built in a LEXUS factory by people with L on their shirts and not bull’s horn.. does that make the Prius a Lexus or Toyota??. Who cares??? Want to take it a step further a CT200h Lexus has a “Prius” Powertrain…

Not really with getting into and worrying about too much. Unless it’s trivia time haha :P

On a side note you can also make the Lotus engine cover fit if you’re a little creative.

Ah, the old Lexus engine chestnut.

You should badge her as a Lexus, to be as awesome as all the blokes in their Chevrolet's.

lol there was a pimped and slammed tarago at work yesterday, had Lexus badges and was running the 3.0 1MZ-FE engine so was most likely a Estima.
